If attachments are showing up in your Microsoft Outlook inbox with a modified ending such as .doc being changed to .1324DEFANGED-doc then the issue is more than likely with your mail server instead of your email client. There is an application called MailScanner that modifies the file ending as a security measure to stop any files from being executed automatically. Below I briefly discuss modifying this setting on a Linux server using ISPConfig.

The easiest way to resolve this issue on a per user basis with an ISPConfig Linux server is to disable MailScanner for that user. MailScanner does provide numerous other security checks though so it is not recommended to disable it but if you must disable the file ending modification then modify the below files.

This post will explain how to post notes from Microsoft OneNote into the WordPress admin. When you copy and paste from most Microsoft products into a visual editor such as TinyMCE that WordPress uses you will typically include a bunch of unwanted tags from the Microsoft application. These tags will make it complicated to format correctly and can even spill over outside of your post and cause issues with your entire WordPress page. The method to input this data into WordPress will work with any of the Microsoft products such as Microsoft OneNote and Microsoft Word.

Below is an example of some basic formatted text copied directly from MS OneNote and pasted into WordPress’s visual editor.

When I was attempting to attach files to Microsoft Outlook 2007 the drop down to switch folders hangs forever as does clicking on folders. Sometimes it would hang so long that the window would show “Not Responding”. Eventually it would unlock and allow me to choose a folder only to hang again if I was drilling down even further. The same problem with very slow navigation when opening files would happen with Microsoft Word 2003, Microsoft Excel 2003, Microsoft Visio, and any other MS Office products.

I initially thought the issue was a problem with my laptop overheating or a possible issue with the pagefile on my laptop. It turns out the issue was the fact that I had configured some network drives to attach when I was on a remote companies network. Every time I was attempting to attach a file and was switching folders or directories it was having to wait to timeout the network drive that was not even attached.

This can be resolved by the following steps.
MS Outlook - Attaching Files Hanging1. Right clicking My Network Places and selecting Disconnect Network Drives…
2. Click and any network drives that show in here that you do not connect to every time you boot your computer
3. Click OK to close Disconnect Network Drives

Test attaching a file to MS Outlook and navigate through your folders which should now be much quicker!
